Thank you very much for the speedy reply, Leonid! Both commands give me exactly what I needed – great!

Kristine,

CLAN has a few special characters that have meaning other than their literal meaning. Those characters are:

* _ % @ \

The @ character is used to specify the file name where you would store search strings instead of specifying them on the command line. It also has other special meaning, type "freq +s@" on command line for more information. To search for those characters' literal meaning you need to quote them with the backslash \ character. In you example the command line would be:

 combo +t*NOR +s*\@prt

If you are searching for words that are not in special relation with each other, for example word followed by another word, then I would recommend that you use KWAL command instead of COMBO.

kwal +t*NOR +s*\@prt


Leonid.

Dear list,

I'm trying to figure out how to search for items coded in the *-tier. Here's a concrete example. In the below utterance (from the Norwegian Simonsen Corpus), the speech of the child Nora is coded for categories/morphology in the *NOR-tier. I want to run a search picking out all elements coded as "@prt" -- particles (highlighted in red below).

*NOR:er&@pr så vond-e at pl å ha&@i på@prt seg så jeg ha-r at pr på meg inne [//] ute=sk [//] inne=sk +//.
%xpho:& So 2vun o 1ha po 7& so j& 2ha p m$&ʘ i:in6 2?u-tn$sk ?n$1d&S

I've tried various combo searches (combo +t*NOR +s at prt; combo +t*NOR +s*@prt; combo +t*NOR +s"@prt"; combo +t*NOR +s"*@prt"… ) but for all of these I get the following error message:

> combo +t*NOR +s at prt @
Can't open either one of the include files:
"prt", "/Applications/CLAN/lib/prt"

Not sure I understand what this means…

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best,
Kristine Bentzen
